  Recognizing women's needs: a key in agriculture production and food security  
(Academic)

In the developing world, women have been denied access to both financial and land resources throughout history. Yet they contribute more than their share to agriculture and food security on a daily basis. Through USAID-ERA (United States Agency for International Development - Education and Research in Agriculture), a project that delivers revitalization of the agricultural sector through education, research, discovery, and outreach, several agricultural interventions at the community, private, and public sector levels have been implemented using the land-grant model. Some of those interventions focus on the explicit goal of improving food security by supporting women at the village levels. This presentation will discuss the initial contribution of these two women-targeted projects on perceived women's health and productivity.
Leading the discussion is Dr. Ozzie Abaye, professor in the School of Plant and Environmental Sciences.
Light refreshments will be provided.
